KIDKA Factory Tours
The perfect stop between Reykjavík and Akureyri
Our knitting factory and factory shop are situated in the beautiful Miðfjörður area, halfway between Reykjavik and Akureyri and only five minutes from the ring road.
Hvammstangi is perfect for a little break before heading further out on to the Vatnsnes peninsula. There you can find the spectacular rock “Hvítserkur” and many, many cute seals. Enjoy what the small but vivid town has to offer, take a look at our factory and get to know some locals!
How is your sweater made?
Kidka factory tours will show you
At KIDKA we offer you the opportunity to witness the interesting process of Icelandic knitwear production and with it a unique insight into an Icelandic company.
KIDKA sweaters, cardigans and accessories are knitted by big knitting machines and exclusively with Icelandic wool. The process of washing, brushing and steaming the wool gives the fabric a soft and fluffly texture. At the same time it doesn’t lack the important feature of keeping its owner warm all-year-round.
We invite you to take a look at our knitwear production and the machines, to watch us work and pose as many questions as you like.
